The Gilmour Project Announces 2022 Tour Dates & Livestream
The band will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s original 1972 Dark Side of The Moon: A Piece For Assorted Lunatics Tour.
The Gilmour Project will celebrate the exact and actual 50th anniversary of Dark Side Of The Moon: A Piece For Assorted Lunatics, which Pink Floyd first performed in January 1972 at The Brighton Dome, United Kingdom, a full 14 months before the release of the legendary album, with a coast-to-coast, U.S. Tour in January 2022. Additionally, The Gilmour Project’s debut livestream performance will take place on June 24 at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.
The Gilmour Project incorporates musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) improvisational; and is the only band since Blue Floyd in 2000 endeavoring to take these songs “OUT,” speaking in jazz protocol, without disregarding the cherished classic hooks, licks and musical phrases. Acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar (lead guitar with CSN, David Crosby, Phil Lesh, Ray Charles), Kasim Sulton (bass & vocals with Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall & Oates, Cheap Trick & Patti Smith), Prairie Prince (co-founder of The Tubes and drums with Todd Rundgren, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh), Mark Karan (guitar & vocals with Bob Weir, RatDog, The Other Ones), and Scott Guberman (keyboard & vocals with Phil Lesh), will take the music of David Gilmour and Pink Floyd to places it has never gone before.
They will perform and explore this masterwork in its entirety as Dark Side Of The Moon, Pieces For Assorted Lunatics, honoring the legendary band. With their focus on David Gilmour’s Pink Floyd repertoire, The Gilmour Project will do a deep dive into the exploration and improvisation that only Gilmour could create. This rendition certainly does not dismiss the iconic contributions of all 5 historic musicians that comprise the Pink Floyd complement, only to bring light to philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative art, and of course, elaborate live shows.
Blue Floyd was formed in January 2000, at the dawn of the 21st century, taking full advantage of the then “new” thing they called social media. A conglomeration of top-notch players from other bands came together to spread this music marked by the use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, and elaborate live shows. International tape collectors codifying the band’s utter brilliance created an enduring mystique apart from and in contrast to the tribute band phenomenon.
The improvisational “jam gestalt” of the legendary Blue Floyd, which both Pevar and Prince performed with, matched with Pink Floyd deep tracks, hits and fan favorites, including solo Gilmour gems, and accompanied by “Floydian” audio FX from Paul Simon producer The Duke of New York (Graceland: The Remixes) gives you none other than The Gilmour Project.
